I have regularly found that I have to kill winscp when it gets its "knickers in a twist" when one tab cannot connect for some reason causing the whole app. to freeze.

For example, I may have connected to a site using cpanel and then I may suspend that account from WHM meaning that site is no longer available. When I return to the current WinSCP session then it freezes and I see the spinning hourglass over the app. I cannot close the offending session nor can I close the app. This is a real pain if I have multiple tabs open and I always have multiple tabs open.

I currently have to kill the WinSCP app from task manager. If each connection had its own process then the application and the other tabs would not be affected and I could kill the offending tab manually. Being able to identify the process in task manager would also help me kill an individual process from there.

Sorry, it is unlikely this ever gets implemented.

Anyway, I would like to fix the bug you are facing. Are you able to reproduce it easily?
